My high school had a vo-ed auto body and collision shop and I painted two cars back in the late 80's early 90's. I still own both of those cars today (a 69 Chevelle Malibu and a 1970 RS/SS396) I was going to be a mechanic but the counselor at school said "with those grades you need to go to college" So I went to Pitt for a mechanical engineering degree and started my career in the automotive industry working on valvetrain development and failure analysis. Good job for a kid hotrodder. Throughout the years work left little time for me to tackle full paint jobs and I had an above average number of cars painted because my wife is an hotrod enthusiast too. I used a number of shops mainly because of the backlog in the shop, I didn't want to wait. Some shops were fantastic while others had the glitz and glam but fell short in every respect. I was tired of paint jail. I was tired of a more lucrative job pushing my car to the back burner. I was tired of horrific rust repair methods. I was tired of finding my well preserved original interior nearly ruined by filler dust. At some point, I changed jobs to get more family time. As the kids got older, I found time for me so I went back to school to get a degree in autobody and collision repair. Then I started working on hotrods again, for a friend, and then his friend, and his friend, to the point of no free time again. So I quit my job and I am opening a 20,000sqft custom car and restoration shop. I will pick up and deliver clients cars from all over the country. In my shop, there is no paint jail or late model collision work. More lucrative work doesn't change the priority in the shop. I take personal responsibility in delivering cars on time and on budget. You might not need my shop today or ever but check it out on the website or on Facebook and come back often. I have a monthly newsletter that you can sign up for on the webpage. I don't do driver quality paint, only show quality paint. But show quality paint doesn't have to cost a fortune or your retirement, or take years to get done. I use PPG Deltron line of paint unless you want a color from the Vibrance line or House of Kolor. We do everything in-house except for upholstery and I have new and top of the line equipment. PS to you guys in the 'Burgh. I grew up on McMurray Road in Bethel Park and I go back from time to time.
